Classical...Star Wars?

Can it still be considered classical education if you use Star Wars as an illustration?

The other day, Kora and I were discussing one of the stories in Canterbury Tales, and I was trying to describe irony to her. The most obvious example I could think of was Episode III of Star Wars. Anakin, in trying to prevent the thing he most feared, decided on a course of actions that directly led to the dreaded event. She instantly got it, and was then able to describe the irony in the literature she had read.

So will this get me kicked out of the classical education community? ;-)
